“When signing the agreement, immediately a clear task was given to ensure safe and uninterrupted oil production, make timely payments to the budget of Kazakhstan and ensure safety of employees. We are glad to see that TCO has been following its commitments for 30 years,” as mentioned by the RoK Minister Energy Almasadam Satkaliyev.
There are only a few oil fields in the world with reservoirs similar to Tengiz reservoir, in which gas injection is used as a method of oil recovery. High–pressure gas injection is a practice not only rare in Kazakhstan oil and gas industry, but also unique for Tengiz. TCO high-tech reservoir modeling capabilities make it possible to more accurately characterize the field, optimize production and maximize oil recovery.
Development of modern technologies today makes it possible to discover new oil formations that were previously considered unprofitable. The projects at Tengiz field are distinguished by special technological complexity, high safety requirements, scale and involvement of a large number of workers. These projects apply unique innovative solutions aimed at high-quality production growth.
